BOBBI HOBSON
Secretary/Treasurer

 

Bobbi Hobson's career with Farr Yacht Design began in 1983 when she came on board as Office Manager. 
 
A native of New Jersey, Bobbi graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Textiles and Clothing. Following graduation, Bobbi moved to the Baltimore area and tried various positions in fashion merchandising which was her intended career path. After moving to Annapolis, Bobbi became interested in sailing that led to a career change and working at a sail brokerage. During the 6 years at the sail brokerage, Bobbi learned much about sails, boats and the marine industry in general. 
 
As Farr Yacht Design has grown, Bobbi's role has changed accordingly. Her constant responsibility has been to support Bruce, manage the company's accounts and insurance as well as handling all human resource matters. This has given her the opportunity to meet most of our clients and to work with our accountants, attorneys and insurance agents. In 2000, she was elected Secretary/Treasurer adding a new responsibility as an officer of the company. 
 
A love of travel combined with her interest in sailing has led Bobbi to several sailing events. She has been to Key West Race Week as crew support, attended Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race starts and America's Cup trials. 
 
Bobbi and her husband Jim previously owned and raced a Cal 25 on the Chesapeake Bay. She has also enjoyed cruising on the Bay and up to New England on the Hobson family classic Concordia 41 yawl. In addition there was a wonderful offshore sailing experience on a Morgan 41 from Bermuda back to Annapolis.
